NH DHHS Preparations for Novel Coronavirus ~State offers precautions to mitigate virus spread~

Published: 01/27/2020 4:45 PM - Health Indicators

Concord, NH – As reports of the 2019 novel coronavirus continue, the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Division of Public Health Services (DPHS) is monitoring for potential cases and taking precautions to limit the impact if the virus is found in New Hampshire. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local health departments are closely monitoring the outbreak. Currently, the CDC has confirmed five infections of novel coronavirus in the U.S. from four states, and is testing more than 100 additional individuals across the U.S.

Healthcare providers have been asked to alert DPHS if they identify patients with travel to Wuhan City/Hubei Province, China, who become ill with fever or respiratory symptoms within 14 days of travel so as to assist with testing and ensure isolation of the ill patients to prevent potential spread of a novel coronavirus. There are currently two individuals in New Hampshire with recent travel to Wuhan City, China, who have developed respiratory symptoms and are currently undergoing testing for novel coronavirus. These people have more mild illness, but both sought healthcare for their illnesses and are recovering. They remain isolated until test results are available. Samples have been sent to the CDC for testing. If testing confirms a case of novel coronavirus in New Hampshire, DPHS will share that information and protective recommendations with both the affected parties and the public as quickly as possible.

Published: 12/11/2019 8:07 AM - Mayor's Press Room Announcements

Mayor Joyce Craig and the Manchester Transit Authority (MTA) are pleased to announce that through December 31, all stops along Route 8 will be offered free of charge.

By making travel free on Route 8, we’re hoping to give people using public transportation to shop or go to work a stress-free experience for the holidays,” said Mayor Joyce Craig. “I’d like to thank Director Mike Whitten for working with my office to offer free travel along this route for the second year in a row.”

“MTA is thrilled to again offer free transportation on Route 8, our most popular route in the entire MTA system,” said Director Mike Whitten, MTA. “This is a great opportunity to thank our passengers who ride the buses throughout the year and to also invite new members of the community who perhaps haven’t ridden a bus recently to come and check it out for free. Thank you to Mayor Craig and the City of Manchester for partnering with us again to bring back this very popular event.”

MTA Route 8 makes six regular loop stops -- the Downtown Manchester Doubletree Hotel, Michaels/Burlington Coat Factory Plaza on South Willow Street, Walmart on Gold Street, the Mall of New Hampshire, South Willow Street and Weston Road, and Downtown Manchester.

15 Little Libraries Scheduled to be Installed Across Manchester

Published: 10/31/2019 12:00 PM - Mayor's Press Room Announcements

Today, Mayor Joyce Craig announced a partnership with Girls at Work, Inc. to install fifteen miniature libraries across the community. Built by Girls at Work, Inc. volunteering during the Granite United Way’s Day of Caring, these little libraries are scheduled to be installed in parks, near schools, and at City Hall.

Made possible through support from Girls at Work, the Manchester Parks and Recreation Division and Manchester City Library, the fifteen little libraries will be a shared resource aimed to encourage and inspire a love of reading and community engagement. 

“This will be a wonderful resource to children across our city, and I’m thrilled to be involved in this project,” said Mayor Joyce Craig. “I want to thank Girls at Work, the Parks and Recreation Division and the Library for their partnership and support for this effort. By making books accessible to children and students across Manchester, we are able to continue promoting early literacy to our young learners.”

“Girls at Work was extremely excited to partner with the City of Manchester on Granite United Way Day of Caring. We had the opportunity to teach volunteers from Acadia Insurance, Parkland Medical Center, St. Mary's Bank, Sheehan Phinney Bass and Green and City Year how to build little libraries that will be displayed around the city,” said Elaine Hamel, Founder and Program Director, Girls at Work, Inc. “It's really fun to see the bonding happen with adults in an unfamiliar environment working toward a common goal of building for others. Thanks to everyone who came together to make it happen, and thanks to Granite United Way Day of Caring for bringing so many volunteers together to invest their time in our community.”

“The Manchester City Library supports literacy efforts in our community which is why we are proud to be partnering with Girls at Work, the City Parks and Recreation Division and the Mayor’s Office to support the installation of little libraries around our city,” said Denise van Zanten, Director, Manchester City Library.  “Little libraries play an integral role in communities by promoting literacy and providing access to materials for all ages.  We look forward to expanding our literacy efforts with our little library community partners.”

Reading is such an integral part of life so the Parks and Recreation Division is glad to be part of this tremendous group effort. Having free reading material available in parks and public places is a great way to encourage people of all ages to enjoy the outdoors and expand their minds at the same time,” said Janet Horvath, Recreation and Enterprise Manager, Parks and Recreation Division. “Thanks go to our partners, Mayor Craig and her staff, Girls At Work and the City Library.  We can’t wait to see you outdoors enjoying the parks and reading!”

Over the next few days, the Manchester Parks and Recreation Division will install four little libraries at Livingston Park, Rock Rimmon Park, Sheridan Emmett Park, and Manchester City Hall. The remaining eleven libraries are scheduled to be installed in spring 2020.
